Pink in Black and White


the precarious root is latin for prayer –
obtained by entreaty
at the pleasure of another.

i fit my life inside this word
unwittingly suiting my description to
a term which
tells my tale so completely,
absorbs the yearning invocation,
relieves me of the burden
answered at last.
